After leaving the station I got on a water taxi to get to my hotel. I arrived in Venice late at night. Now I don’t know why water taxis in Venice look like limousines. This isn’t a “nice” water taxi or anything, this is just what the water taxis look like in Venice. Don’t they remind you of prom?
Hotel Metropole was possibly one of the most unique hotel experiences I’ve had… Upon walking in I was greeted with a group of lit candles and the smell of dried spices. The vibe? Seductive.
General Sitting area.
Pathway to Dining Room.
At 5 am in the morning.
The hotel also displays old religious figurines (which are not for sale) as part of its interior.
Before heading into my room to sleep I checked out the bar, I was craving a Mojito!
Heading into the room.
I prefer simpler looking rooms, but once in a while its nice to stay in such a visually rich place.
Towards the back of my room there was a mirrored wall, and a bathtub randomly sitting in the main room.
Shopping bags from shopping last minute after suitcase was fully packed in Florence- had to lug these onto the Eurostar.
I did make full use of this bathtub. Hadn’t had a proper “bath” during the whole trip. I actually can’t stay in bathtubs for long. I get exhausted and the novelty wears off soon.
Charlotte Olympia boots from Luisaviaroma.
The shower was very nice, big…water pressure was hard. But then I noticed that small lights were installed into the ceilings and they looked like night stars!
Showers also include steam.
View from the room.
Next morning, heading out to see the city. Hotel side entrance.
